Alan O’Donohoe @teknoteacher has 25 years experience teaching and leading Technology education in schools in Northern England. After introducing Computing into the school curriculum he supported many other schools to do likewise through a nationwide programme of professional development for teachers.
To increase access and opportunity to young digital makers, Alan organises events that include Hack To The Future, Hack Jams and in 2012 established the Raspberry Jam community for people of all ages and backgrounds with an interest in Digital Making. Raspberry Jam events now take place worldwide every week and Preston moves closer to celebrating it’s 100th Raspberry Jam event. In 2015, with the support of Bradford based Exa Networks, Alan diverted his energy to setting up Exa.Foundation to continue his work to inspire, engage and support teachers and learners. exa.foundation @exafoundation.
